ABOUT THE BIBLE BEE!

THE SHELBY KENNEDY FOUNDATION:

On May 31, 2005 at the age of 23, Shelby Kennedy went home to be with the Lord after an intense struggle with cancer. Shelby was described as a Christian who had an unusual spiritual gift of faith, a special person who radiated joy, life, and hope to everyone she met. Although Shelby had minimal energy and needed to use a wheelchair most of the time she was awake, what energy she had was focused on proclaiming Jesus Christ. Her testimony of hope in the midst of a fiery trial sparked a spirit of revival in those around her.

Much of what kept Shelby's joy alive in her last days was time spent studying the Word of God. Shelby is the inspiration behind The Shelby Kennedy Foundation, a nonprofit ministry established in her name to encourage children and youth to grow in Christ through study of the Bible and Scripture memorization. Shelby's testimony sparked an incredible vision to launch a world-class Bible Bee!
